    First...I don't believe anything that appears on that site, from an editorial perspective...they publish/distribute trash in my opinion. Second, I believe Android is in trouble when Cows Fly and Obama is rated the best President ever.

    Not meant to be a low blow to you...no at all. It was purely a personal opinion of that web site and the rumors and trash that they freely propagate over the web. The Apple Fanboys would love for you to believe that garbage. I probably should have left the political comment out, but I'll stand by the cow things.

    This article makes some generally good points about the failure of Android tablets and the app market (if you consider using google's ad service instead of charging for the app a failure)

    I'm sick of hearing that other manufacturers will become schoolyard-angry with Google if they (Google) decide to ask Motorola Mobility for ANYTHING. The current count is one against since the buyout. But let's see how many Nexus devices get pushed onto Moto, if they ever apply for a design in the first place. On the flipside, I would find it more than unusual if Goog were to never use Moto at their discretion considering the price payed. This probably belongs in another thread, but since I'm on the topic of current problems; Shame on you google, for not seeking the correct path of paying Oracle/Sun the appropriate license fees. You can argue that API's are inherent code and not copyrightable all you want, but obviously the system sees it the other way around else you wouldn't be in court today.

    This may not be the most popular opinion on this site, but I hope iOS thrives. Competition is a good thing and makes everyone better.

    A lot of cosmic things will happen when Obama is rated best President ever...I believe Atlantis rising would be first on the list :)

    Yes...I certainly shared my opinion of our President, which really didn't need to be included as part of my response to the OP. As far as true when I think it's false...I really have lost respect for that site and therefore don't take anything they say or publish seriously. The article may have some valid points, but I don't think in the grand scheme of things that Android is falling.

    I agree that it was low. We all know pigs are the ones that are supposed to do the flying.

    Android isn't going anywhere. They still have the highest activations of any OS and Samsung just moved to the top of the totem pole of how many phones have been shipped.
